This Sunday on Melissa Harris-Perry, one-on-one with Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

An exclusive interview with the chief law enforcement officer of the Federal Government on Ferguson, Missouri, one year after the death of Michael Brown, also the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Voting Rights Act, and many other key issues.

Also on MHP, this weekend, we’ll go live to Ferguson as the city marks one year since the shooting death of Michael Brown by former Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson. Events commemorating the day began Friday in the city, and will be continuing through Monday. We discuss the role of the Department of Justice. We’ll also examine how Ferguson is an articulation of the Black Lives Matter movement.
